First Look: David Oyelowo, Charlize Theron, & Joel Edgerton In Nash Edgerton's 'Gringo'

Just a few weeks after we learned Nash Edgerton's feature directorial debut would be adding Michael Jackson's daughter Paris to the cast for her first acting gig, the film now has an official title, release date, and image. Sounds like she brought the project some good luck.

Now titled Gringo, the film features an absolutely killer cast of Joel Edgerton, David Oyelowo, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, Yul Vazquez, Thandie Newton and Sharlto Copley. The Aussie director will be venturing far from home for this one as the story crosses over the U.S. border and into Mexico for some criminal shenanigans. Here's the synopsis:

Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, Gringo joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for mild-mannered American businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth, the question lingers: is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead? 

Gringo has been given a release date of March 9th 2018.
